back as a man of the people, as jimmy carter did? there is careful balance. when you look at some of this material, you can see over time that, in fact, they are carefully crafting it as well. i have always been amazed in looking at jimmy carter's inaugural serial, how informal his material tends to be compared to other presidents, and it is clearly a statement that following the nixon years, the imperial presidency, they were going to have a residency of the people -- presidency of the people. you notice that on his tickets, rather than having an inaugural ball, he has an inaugural party , which is a clear statement. then, you can come back to ronald reagan, and lo and behold, no surprise, there is a rejection of the jimmy carter years, with a very formal, gold tickets to inaugural balls, and clearly it is an inaugural ball. the program that seems sort of informal for his, becomes pinched very formal -- becomes very formal just a few years later. this says something about those administrations and what they are trying to conceive and produce during those events, and it also says
of the capital. they included former presidents jimmy carter and his wife rosalyn and bill clinton accompanied by his wife, outgoing secretary of state hillary clinton. and then the formal entrances. the obama daughters were introduced to the crowd along with their grandmother marion robinson, the first lady's mother. they were followed by jill biden and by mrs. obama. >> ladies and gentlemen, the first lady of the united states, mrs. michelle obama. >> brown: and the vice president. ♪ hail to the chief and the president himself greeted by official music (hail to the chief). and by chants from the crowd. >> obama! brown: then the ceremonies got underway. the former chair of the naacp and widow of the slain civil rights leader delivered the invocation. >> we invoke the prayers of our grandmothers who taught us to pray, "god, make me a blessing." let their spirit guide us as we claim the spirit of old. there's something within me that holds the reins. there's something within me that banishes pain. there's something within me i cannot explain, but all i know, america, there is something within
's that you attended and where the crowd sizes? guest: my first one was 1977, jimmy carter. i was a 20-year-old political science major and it was already on my bucket list to go to the inauguration. host: it was the last one on the east front of the capital. guest: absolutely. i think about the difference, maybe not so much the crowds. but it is the security situation. at that time, i stayed in a hotel on pennsylvania avenue. a friend had come with me. i think we just walked straight up pennsylvania avenue. i am not even sure we had a ticket. we stood behind the east front of the capitol and had a very good view. host: you could see the president directly. guest: absolutely. we were very close. after that, we just ran from the east front down it to pennsylvania avenue, a constitution, and watched the parade. so we got to see jimmy carter. he walked. we were so shocked and thrilled to see him do that, and part of the whole ceremony to me is the combination of pomp and populism. jimmy carter had that touch. host: professor lusane, you have written about african-americans in their american ex
president since jimmy carter has gotten out and hoofed it for at least part of the distance. our modern security age has placed some restrictions on that. let it be said that the city feels like a bit of a police state these last two days. erica hill is standing by at the newly renamed freedom plaza. erica, is everything locked down in advance of that behind you? >> it is fairly locked down. there is security to get into the area, brian. there have been a number of police officers, the park service police out all morning long going up and ask down. he would seen police, motorcycles, vehicles coming up and down. appearing to just sort of check on what's going on. people are, though, now starting to trickle into the area, to get their way into the stands here at freedom plaza. >> all right. willie geist is at the navy memorial. if you consider erica as our closest correspondent to when they make the turn at the white house, this puts willie a little closer to the capitol. good morning. >> good morning, brian. i'm about at the halfway point in this 1.2 mile stretch of road that takes us fr

and walking. jimmy carter started it 36 years ago. it's been done just about every time since. today was no exception. for a president who complains that his job often keeps him from being out among the people, it's about as close as the secret service would allow for today. we had an enormous team covering this enormous event here today. we want to bring just two members of that team on at first to talk about what we just witnessed. our political director and chief white house correspondent, chuck todd, is with us. and david gregory, moderator of "meet the press" and might add former chief white house correspondent. david, we'll start with you. this speech was not short on specifics. in fact, it was unusual for the number of specifics, and a speech of its kind. what stuck out at you? >> a shorter speech, but a lot of substance there. here you have a president talking about the need for economic restoration, but he's got a theory of the case. he's talking about lifting up the middle class. a robust defense of a progressive vision of what government ought to do, defending medicare and
former president jimmy carter and bill clinton for those with a front row seat it was elbow to elbow on a chilly day the massive crowd quickly warmed the scene close to 800,000 may be 1 million this year compared to 1.8 million people in 2009. so what was mrs. obama going to wear? she didn't disappoint in a navy code in dress by an up-and-coming men's designer joined by their daughters together they sang, they listen to and prayed as vice president joe biden and then president barack obama took their oaths to serve the nation for four more years if flawless performance except for one minor flub, his speech lasted 19 minutes into covered everything from equal rights to economic recovery climate change to the message of martin luther king jr. on a day that the nation celebrates the birth of the civil-rights leader. >> tahir a preacher say we cannot walk alone the challenges ahead are enormous and the president admitted that his work would be imperfect. we must act that knowing that today's victories will be only partial grammy winner kelly clarkson giving the ceremony in central holl

companies to invest here is one of his priorities. >> there's former president jimmy carter and his wife. immediately before them, as you might have heard, melissa harris perry, jay-z. it's jay-z and beyonce is doing the national anthem. she did "america the beautiful" at the inaugural concert in 2009 but she will be at the main event singing right after the president's speech today. what you're looking at here, the motorcade here, the giant motorcade is heading into the immediate area of the inaugural platform outside the u.s. capitol. starting with ronald reagan in the 1980s, the inaugurations since then have all happened on the west front of the capitol, which is a very dramatic sight as you see there, looking down the mall toward the west front. there's an array of flags that will be on the stage. you can see there up in the upper left-hand corner of the screen, you see the five flags? the center flag is the american flag as it is now. the betsy ross flag is on the outside, the first one in, the second one and the fourth one, those are the flags that are not usually flown anywhere re
married, dr. howard crine. other vip seating includes former presidents. jimmy carter will be there. bill clinton will be here today but there will be no former bush presidents. of course george h.w. bush is recovering from being ill. he's been in the hospital for quite some time. george w. bush decided to stay back in texas, too, although he did send his regrets. the leadership in congress, the joint chiefs. there is one member of the cabinet who will not be here. we don't know who it is yet but it's a so-called designated survivor, the person that stays behind just in case the unimaginable happens. it was then defense secretary robert gates four years ago. we're waiting to see who it is this time around. this is where all the big people will be sitting. they'll file in sometime a little over 9:00 a.m. zoraida? >> i love the view, john. i think you may have the best seat in the house right now. >> not bad. >> thank you very much. so the washington who's who will no doubt be in full party mode tonight with inaugural events planned around the city, the commander in chief's ball and the ina
donors as well. former presidents jimmy carter, bill clinton, neither of the bushes coming. george h.w. bush still recovering from illness. you can see them setting up. putting name tags on the chairs. so everyone knows where to sit and laying out the official inauguration ceremony program. a lovely, lovely piece of paper right here. we got one ourselves. lays out the ceremonies that will be happening today in about six hours from now. zoraida. >> all right. thank you very much, john. president obama better get all of his partying done tonight. his second term is in full effect already and that means the potential for great achievements, but if history is any indicator, the second term is where things can get messy. it's not like he wasn't warned. >> i'm more than familiar with the literature about presidential overreach in second terms. >> president barack obama's victory dance is about to become a dance against destiny. >> if we look back, some really great examples of really big things being done in second terms. but recent history, there is the potential for real disaster. >> i d
lined all along pennsylvania avenue. they followed the footsteps of jimmy carter and rose alyn cart who created the tradition of walking down pennsylvania avenue. they walked the entire way. president obama and the first lady got out of the vehicle twice. now, despite the partisan divide that has overcome washington in recent times, president obama sounded optimistic today as he called a nation to action. >> we recognize that no matter how responsibly we live our lives, any one of us at any time may face a job loss or a sudden illness or a home swept away in a terrible storm. the commitments we make to each other through medicare and medicaid and social security, these things do not sap our nation, they strengthen us. they do not make us a nation of takers. they free us to take the risks that make this country great. >> let's bring in our panel of van jones, former special adviser for the president. margaret hoover, and cornell belcher, a pollster for obama in 2012. sally, we haven't heard from you. you have heard a lot in washington. i wonder what you think of this speech and how it co
the turn on to pennsylvania avenue and then a slow crawl up to the white house. and jimmy carter was the first president back in 1977 who actually walked this route. last year, president obama as president bush did got out partway through and walked to the white house and we expect that's probably going to happen again. this parade will be about a mile and a half long, include all sorts of interesting floats and of course, fabulous marching bands from the u.s. military, some civilian ones as well. this all started back in 1801 with thomas jefferson had a little bit of a parade that was taking to the inauguration. 1909 with james madison is when the first official pred happened and i think as megyn pointed out to you yesterday, bret. perhaps the most infamous one was 1973 with richard nixon when he ordered the park service to spray all the trees with basically a form of bird be gone, it was called roost no more. and didn't want them on the parade goers, and the pidgeons ate it and they were falling on top of people because they were sick. >> megyn: more like live no more. >> live
was inaugurated to seeing jimmy carter walk down when everyone thought the limo broke, he got out and walked. to see the -- as john pointed out, to see the reinauguration of our first african-american president, it is an exciting day for everyone in america. we broke from royalty hundreds of years ago now. we still like a little bit every once in awhile. this is our day for that. >> john: michael, you bring up very good points. the poor horse that had to drag taft's carriage all those years ago. this is almost 224 years george washington was sworn in as our first president. i think it is fitting we have michael hastings here and that you're spending the morning in portland. one of our most progressive cities. this is a president-elected largely due to the grassroots work of progressives and liberals. many of whom had issues with his policies and still have but i think it goes to show whereas the republican party, one could argue was identified this year by purity tests, the democratic party shows you could be completely in the tank for this president's election while still taking issue with
of the cabinet who remains out in case something happens. former presidents. former president jimmy carter, former president bill clinton. no bush presidents here today. george h.w. bush, bush 41 still recovering from that illness he's been battling the last several months. and george w. bush and laura, they sent their regrets. their thoughts, they say, are with the obamas, but they stayed back in texas as well. soledad? >> all right. john berman, thank you very much. i want to show folks where john is. you can see the media platform or the many platforms where the media is is right up there. you can see how close that is over to the capitol, very, very close. really, john and i, when we're up there, have one of the best seats in the house. the capitol, some of the best seats are right here. all these different sections then straight back, look straight back. you can see 200,000 -- 800,000 people on the mall. we'll get right to brianna keilar, who is at st. john's church, with an update from there. >> reporter: you're looking at right behind me michelle obama getting out of the beast, as w
. jimmy carter was actually the first to do that back in 1977. to give you an eye of the scope of the security here, we've got state troopers from around the country, including from the utah highway patrol. they were nice enough to share one of their patches with us. just past them, the alabama state highway patrol. there are officers from across the country here to make sure this goes off without a hitch. estimates, as matt said, somewhere between 500,000 and 700,000 people, that's according to homeland security who looks at things like restaurant, hotel reservations and charter buses to get to that number. that's an awful lot of people around this parade route as president obama makes his way down from the capitol back to the white house later this afternoon. guys? >> willie, you mentioned security. if you're anywhere near the parade route and you've gone through screening stations, you will not be allowed to have any aerosols, ammunition, which is an obvious, animals except for helper dogs, backpacks, bags, bicycles, no structures to hold signs, mace, pepper spray. laser poi
